“Satisfaction” Season 1 Episode 3 “Through Competition” aired on Thursday, July 31, 2014, at 11:00 p.m. on USA. Neil and the entire Truman family dealt with their own personal problems. Read on to learn more about Movie News Guide’s (MNG) Episode 3 “Through Competition” recap.
Previously on Episode 2 “Through Admission” (July 24, 2014), Neil (Matt Passmore) thought of not confronting Grace (Stephanie Szostak) about hiring a male escort named Simon (Blair Redford) behind his back in “Pilot.” He previously got his hands on Simon’s phone and got an escort job for himself. Unfortunately, his “enlightenment” was just short-lived after his Zen Master used the stolen phone to contact his wife.
In “Through Competition,” the episode picked up after Neil found a photo of Simon with Anika (Michelle DeShon). Neil made a deal with Simon. He promised to help him with Simon’s problem with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Simon has been dealing with his repossessed car and doesn’t have enough money for himself. Neil and Simon agreed to do this in exchange of information about Grace and their crumbling marriage.
Neil returned to his work with another problem. A wife of his client admitted that she took part of their money to be transferred in her personal account. The wife told him that she knew about the other women in her husband’s life. Neil asked his client and the husband of the woman about it. He just got shut down by the woman’s wealthy husband, Charles Lipton. Neil did not have any choice, but to do his job.
Neil got an invite from Adrianna (Katherine LaNasa) about an upcoming masquerade party. He declined her invitation but attended the party later on. He was channeling his networking talents when Adrianna arrived. Neil was confronted for using a facade that hid his true identity.
On the other hand, Grace went to a club with her young project manager at a design firm. She thought that this might be a great way to ask for an apology from her boss. It was after she refused to follow the orders given to her. She shut down Simon’s advances, who also went to the club. It seems that Simon got hurt over her accusations. He started to flirt with Alex, Grace’s boss.
At the Oak Roots Academy, Anika felt troubled that her rising popularity might become a problem. She was ordered to send an apology letter to them. Fortunately, her bold move had caught the attention of her fellow students. The good thing was that her trusty aunt was there to help her.
